We are at the specialized company that repairs helicopters of the state and civil aviation.  ­­

Its history started in January, 1942. From the very beginning it was intended to repair aircrafts and their engines but in 1977 it was fully reoriented to repair Mi-24 helicopters. Since then they have repaired more than 1200 helicopters Mi-8, Mi-14, Mi-17, Ka-27, Ka-29, Ka-32.
